Conquering Childhood Trauma With Michael AnthonyFeb 11, 2021
On today’s episode, I chat with Michael Anthony about his continual journey of self-growth. Michael was born to a hyper-abusive drug addict mother who cut his finger off at 4 years old, a step-father you pray you never have, and a racist grandmother that pushed him into having an identity crisis. By the time he was 9, his family was in poverty and often homeless all while being members of the Mormon Church. At twelve, he was adopted by his grandmother and quickly turned to drugs and alcohol to survive the continued abuse. Despite multiple learning disabilities and not graduating high school on time, Michael found success in Corporate America in his early twenties.
Upon finding his success, the large influx of money, initially, only made things worse. Michael found himself morbidly obese, high and drunk daily, and ultimately self-sabotaging everything around him. It was not until finding his inner power through his Mirror Moment and choosing to do whatever it took to work through childhood trauma that his life really began.
On this episode we dive into:
- Childhood abuse and addiction
- The effects money can have on addiction
- Michael’s journey through self-growth and practising meditation
- Creating and executing, self-discipline
- Overcoming childhood abuse
- What you can do to set yourself up for success (mentally) in the aftermath of experiencing abuse
Today, Michael Anthony is the author of the best-selling book “Think Unbroken” and is a coach, mentor, and educator for adult survivors of child abuse. Michael spends his time helping other survivors get out of, "The Vortex" to help people become the hero of their own story and take their lives back. Michael is also the host of The Michael Unbroken Podcast, teaches at Think Unbroken Academy, and is on a mission to create change in the world.
Michael is the perfect example of how you really can come out of - AND, overcome anything! If Michael’s story resonates with you, know that you are not alone. It’s all about making a decision and moving forward warriors, and I believe that each and every one of you has the power within you already, just like Michael did - to move forward too!
